Thinking about the discipline
Engineering Technology (EGT) is the study and application of concepts from mathematics and natural sciences used in the implementation and extension of existing or emerging technologies. NKU offers programs leading to an ABET accredited Bachelor of Science degree in the fields of Electronics Engineering Technology (EET) and Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering Technology (MMET).
These programs provide the knowledge and practical skills required to gain professional employment in electronics, mechanical systems, and manufacturing industries. The Engineering Technology programs are supported by local industry, who provide most of our students with Co-op opportunities at the start of their second year. These typically lead to an offer of full-time employment. EGT graduates are hired as product design engineers, manufacturing process engineers, quality engineers, sales engineers, etc. with a near 95% job placement.
